Hearing great things about Swanson's previous works I was excited to get my hands on this book but it fell a little flat for me. There was so much more that could've been done to to really flesh out the main character — she has a pivotal life event in her backstory that seemed to be disconnected, again Swanson falls down connecting this to the character. This is a life-changing event that should really define who she is and the whole thing felt weak and was just filler.
The ending and most of the book is predictable, I wanted suspense and where's the twist? I had it all figured out.
A good premise, but that's it. I will definitely check out his other works, I haven't given up on him yet.
